What are global perspectives?

 GE_Learning Emphases

Global education has five learning emphases or perspectives:

  • Interdependence and globalisation – an understanding of the complex social, economic and political links between people and the impact that changes have on each other
  • Identity and cultural diversity – an understanding of self and one’s own culture, and being open to the culture of others
  • Social justice and human rights – an understanding of the impact of inequality and discrimination, the importance of standing up for our own rights and our responsibility to respect the rights of others
  • Peace building and conflict resolution – an understanding of the importance of building and maintaining positive and trusting relationships and ways conflict can be prevented or peacefully resolved
  • Sustainable futures – an understanding of the ways in which we can meet our current needs without diminishing the quality of the environment or reducing the capacity of future generations to meet their own needs.
